The main saloon features a large sectional sofa, two overstuffed occasional chairs, a dining table with chairs, a full service wet bar and an entertainment centre including a 52 inch Samsung LCD television screen. This area is well lit with natural light from the large windows and in 2014 hardwood floors were installed. Forward and opposite the galley is a breakfast settee for four guests, offering a comfortable area for relaxed snacks through the day.
The sheltered aft deck has a gas barbecue grill, fridge and a large settee with a mahogany table, suitable for al fresco dining seating six or more guests.
